Mastering Glass Etching: Tips and Tricks

Glass etching with a laser is an art form. To achieve the best results, consider these tips and tricks:

  1. Test Different Glass Types: Due to varying glass compositions, it’s essential to experiment with various speeds and power settings to find the perfect match.
  2. Moist Paper Towel Method: Applying a moist paper towel over the glass engraving area helps prevent chipping and ensures a smooth, frosted appearance.
  3. Dish Soap Technique: Alternatively, you can apply a thin layer of dish soap to the target area and laser etch with the glass surface still wet.
  4. Reverse Mirror Etching: When etching mirrors, laser etch the reverse side of the mirror using the inverse of the file image to achieve the correct appearance in the mirror reflection.
  5. Rotary Attachment for Curved Glass: For glassware with consistent curves like bottles or glasses, use a roller or chuck rotary attachment for precise etching.
  6. Photo Engraving with Lightburn: For photo engraving on glass, consider using Lightburn, a laser software ideal for processing photos on any material, especially glass.
